Michael Leonard.


Artist Partners have sadly been informed about the recent passing of legendary artist, Michael Leonard. Michael was one of the original artists represented by Artist Partners , back in the early days of the agency.

Leonard's influential work, in and outside of the commercial world both in publishing and editorial and in fine art galleries , was undeniably incredible and wonderfully stylish. In honor, we will be respectfully sharing some of his brilliant pieces over time.

Here are just a few of his more recognizable works.Artist Partners | A Brief History 1951 – 2000
